The fact that the cast of Jersey Shore once partied there probably isn’t much of an endorsement anymore for LES condo Blue, if it ever was. But hey, Nicolai Ouroussoff loved it too. The fact that the building’s gotten raves from high and low means it probably deserves to attempt a $14,000/month rental listing. And so it is! We learn from the CORE blog that the 2,500-square-foot duplex penthouse (with a 375-square-foot terrace) is now seeking a deep-pocketed renter to pay that $14K. Unit interiors and floorplan above; for those who’d prefer a video visual, the apartment will apparently be on a future episode of Selling New York.
While we’re on the subject, what else is up for grabs in Blue?
It’s been a while since we’ve checked in on the overall state of the starchitecture—the building was designed by Bernard Tschumi—at Blue. So what else is available in the building right now? StreetEasy shows two units for sale, both 1BRs, at $899,000 and $955,000. There are also two units for rent, in addition to the penthouse. A 783-square-foot 1BR is asking $4,500/month, and a 1,315-square-foot 2BR is asking $6,750/month. As for the penthouse itself, it appears to have been available for sale at $2.95 million until just eight days ago. Perhaps there’s some kind of rent-to-own deal to be worked out here.
